Celestial bodies : a novel

Jokha Alharthi ; translated from the Arabic by Marilyn Booth.
Summary
In the village of al-Awafi in Oman, we encounter three sisters: Mayya, who marries after a heartbreak ; Asma, who marries from a sense of duty ; and Khawla, who chooses to refuse all offers and await a reunion with the man she loves, who has emigrated to Canada. These three women and their families, their losses and loves, unspool ... against a backdrop of a rapidly changing Oman, a country evolving from a traditional, slave-owning society into its complex present.
